Markets

Stay current and up-to-date with every ebb and flow of the markets, with articles from the Dent Research team. Our editors cover all markets, foreign and domestic, and all things trading, including: investment strategies, stocks, economic volatility and risk.

Readers of Economy & Markets should know the importance of investment systems. Our editors lay out several benefits of a well-defined, data-driven, and rules-based investment strategy, on a regular basis.

It’s often said in sports that “the best defense is a good offense.” When it comes to investing and stocks, this means focusing on companies that produce floods of cash and that “pay us first.”

The Dent Research team also examines the rise (and falls) of the world’s currencies, which of course includes bitcoin and blockchain, as the cryptocurrency market has taken the world by storm in a relatively short period of time.

Gold was a great standard for monetary systems up until the industrial revolution, but today, it isn’t representative of the information-based economy and it’s too costly to be a medium of exchange. But so many still hold on to gold’s value for a number of reasons, which is why our editors follow gold’s every move.

Real estate is different than other consumer sectors of spending. It’s obviously not consumable like food or clothing. But it’s not like a durable product either, like cars and washing machines. Real estate, with the exception of natural disasters or human insanity (arson, wars, etc.), tends to last forever.

Lastly, the Dent Research team covers many of the leading foreign markets, where you can learn all about the global banking crisis, China and what’s going on in many other foreign markets.

Deutsche Bank’s Stock Down 91.5% to New Lows

A few years ago, I wrote an issue for Boom & Bust outlining the biggest problems in the Eurozone after the QE-stimulated recovery that saved the banks and financial system from going under. The point made was that Italy...

[Video] We’ll Survive the Tariff Tiff

I think we could all improve our mental health by viewing most news as warped entertainment instead of education or edification. Listening to reporters treat each twist and turn of political, social, and economic sagas as the end of the...

Subprime Car Loans Are Back

General Motors (NYSE: GM) has a plan, and it doesn’t involve electric vehicles. Sure, the green-mobiles get all the headlines, but they don’t produce a lot of dough. For that, you need to sell a bunch of cars, and for...

Real Estate Is Going Nuts

China’s largest cities are so overpriced that migrant workers are going back to the rice paddies – and I predict urban unrest in the years ahead from the younger migrant workers who don’t know how to farm or want...

Tariffs Lead to Trade War

You usually find me sifting through important economic data and analyzing how it’ll affect the Treasury market. That’s my wheelhouse. We’ll get to that stuff soon, after we talk about the forces (political and otherwise) that moved the markets. Last week,...

What Rising Oil Prices Mean for Real Estate

I had a finance professor in college who referred to self-evident ideas as BGOs, or blinding glimpses of the obvious. The term stuck with me, and my kids have heard it their entire lives. And it came to mind recently when...

The Market’s Finally Getting Serious About Italy

Over the years I’ve spent much time talking about Italy as the next ticking time bomb for Europe and the global banking system. It’s government debt is the third highest in the world at 132% of GDP, coming only after...

A Safer Way to Play Volatility

I’ve been preaching how this endless and desperate stimulus will (and must) come to an end. When it does, hell’s going to be a popping. The markets keep going up despite one bad news event after another. Central banks keep...

The Income Secret That Would Make a Hall of Famer Jealous

I’m not a particularly big risk-taker. In fact, I’m known around the office as “the income guy” for my work in Peak Income. It’s baseball season, so I’ll use some baseball analogies here. I don’t often swing for the fences looking...

Sports Betting for Profit? The Odds Are Long

The Supreme Court recently ruled that states have the right to regulate sports betting, opening the door for such activity in every state. Chances are, your state officials are burning the midnight oil developing regulations for sports betting because they...
